Borders of Perrystown (Kimmage West). According to Francis Elrington Ball (History of County Dublin 1902) the extensive civil parish of Crumlin in the nineteenth century contained the townland of Perrystown, some townlands were probably named after big landowners e.g. Perry. Early ordnance survey maps show the borders of Perrystown from the Dublin city county border line on the Whitehall Road (including Kimmage Manor and the river Poddle) to the start of Willington roundabout taking in both sides of Templeville Road up to Grovenor Court. Perrystown also includes the Whitehall Road West up to Hillsbrook Ave taking in all of Muckross and Rockfield Avenue down to the county border line with Dublin city. The Church of the Holy Spirit Kimmage Manor is the local parish church in Perrystown.
